Tourism New Zealand will conduct a Virtual Travel Expo to help travel advisors promote and sell the destination.
To be conducted on Wednesday, 16 June 2021, the free event will see 300+ operators and accommodation providers join forces to encourage Australian travel advisors to keep New Zealand top of mind for their client’s future holidays.
Two dozen Regional Tourism Operators (RTOs) will host virtual breakout sessions to equip agents with the up-to-date products, resources, contacts, and information they need to sell New Zealand. Attendees will have access to the latest videos, insights, product manuals and presentations that highlight the very best of New Zealand.
“Quarantine-free travel has reignited Australians’ passion to explore new international experiences,” said Sandra Etter, Head of Trade Tourism New Zealand, Australia.
“Our research shows 98% of Australian travellers are in favour of the trans-Tasman travel zone and 60% are hoping to travel in the next six months.
“We have created a free virtual expo for the travel industry to arm them with the most relevant and up-to-date information to successfully engage with their customers. 79% of agents are most engaged by content focussed on what is new in the market”.
The Virtual Travel Expo ’21 will be hosted via EventsAIR on Wednesday 16 June 2021 from 11:00am – 3:00pm AEST. Travel advisors can register for the virtual expo HERE. Registrations close Monday, 14 June 2021.
